in an election in which mitt romney complained it was used as an issue against him. >> lastly, really quick before we go, real quick, ed markey, your colleague, can he beat scott brown? >> i think so, and the issue is this, in 2010, scott brown was a very decent guy, but a member of this very right-wing party. he's got this problem in massachusetts, especially since in 2010 it was his election that really harolderalded a lot of problems for president obama. massachusetts vote ed overwhel overwhelmingly for president obama. running as a representative for the republican party in the senate to ask for a repudiation of barack obama is a problem. >> going to be fascinating. >> this is not just ed markey on the ballot. this is president obama and ed markey, and i think the people of massachusetts are unlikely to, in effect, reverse their vote of just a couple months ago. >> it's an all boston college race with scott brown and ed markey, the school you represented for over, i believe, 30 years. >> 32. >> thanks for being on the show. we appreciate it. >> thank you, luke. >>> we'll be right back h

position, or perhaps it's something down the road. >> reporter: and lastly -- -- unlike the unhappy guys in the movie "office space," embrace all sorts of technology. >> by the year 2020, over 75% of jobs will have a technology component. i think that's very important for people to understand for longevity. and for employment in the future. >> reporter: staying employed this year will be easier in some fields than in others, of course. jobs in health care and business services like sales are expected to be plentiful. as 2013 goes on, the job market is predicted to pick up steam, setting the stage for better days in the next new year. tom foreman, cnn, washington. >> we'll be right back with the ridiculist. >> announcer: you never know when, but thieves can steal your identity and turn your life upside down. >> hi. >> hi. you know, i can save you 15% today if you open up a charge card account with us. >> you just read my mind. >> announcer: just one little piece of information and they can open bogus accounts, stealing your credit, your money and ruining your reputation. that's why you ne

, washington has to understand spending is the real problem for deficits and debt. and lastly, why is this country taxing the most productive earnings? investors in small business owners. it's just class warfare nonsense. it reduces incentives for the long run. it's all wrong. i'm for free market economic prosperity, not class warfare. let me just tell you this. taxing rich people, taxing upper end successful earners, you can't tax your way into prosperity. you can't tax your way into a balanced budget. you doubt me? just take a look at europe. particularly western europe. anyway, i'm going to get some comments on my little rant. here now are jared bernstein, former vice president biden chief economist. jared, i'm sure you agree wefrg i said. how do you react to my one cheer? >> i always enjoy listening to you. i think you're being an awfully harsh grader here. averting recession and you give it 33%? >> right. >> and then the markets. i always think of you as someone who thinks the markets are conveying information, but you're disagreeing with them. >> that's the one cheer. i give
humanity that it has to cure. lastly, wake up to the idea that the iranians themselves have told us what a intend in a nuclear exchange. again, the president said, the application of an atomic bomb would not leave anything in israel. the same thing would just produce damages in the muslim world. in other words, israel would forever and instantly be wiped off the map, whereas the muslim nation of 1.8 billion people would indoor with some damage. endure with some damage. y that itssly applie worked in the past, it will work in the future is unwarranted. we are assured by the other side that deterrence will work. they do not know, and we do not know if it will work or not. imagine the risk if they are wrong. 6 million jews are dead. the eradication of israel. hyper proliferation in the middle east and iranian domination of the middle east and the oil economy of the world. do any of you want to live with that? thank you very much.

whatever it is that you don't want to do. >> why do you think, lastly, people are unable to stick with those resolutions? >> i think they don't give it enough time, first of all and habits take a long time to change so you really want to stick with it over a sustained period of time. some people have a hard time even getting out of the galt and i think it's because, obviously, these things are hard to do. if it were not hard to do we'd all be doing them and they wouldn't have to be new year's resolutions. >> we'd all be perfect. we can start by practice what can we preach in 2013. thank you, doctor. >> thanks, keith. >>> big gains on wall street. we'll check in with cnbc courtney regan. she has more on that and the rest of the day's business headlines. hi, courtney. >> reporter: good morning. stocks are soaring on this live there deal, markets reassured by the uncertainty that's no dissipating. the dow is up about 230 points and a percentage basis, tech-heavy nasdaq is leading the gains with the best inter day gain in six months. the first trading day of the year does seem to be a

increased flexibility to create efficiencies and achieve results. lastly, congress should not impose maintenance of effort provisions of states as a condition of receiving federal funding. in other words, it states receive federal cuts, washington should not demand the same level of service without providing the same level of funding. essentially, all of these points can and will be coming down to flexibility and partnership. we need the flexibility to take care of the unique needs of our citizens and the challenges of our states. what we do not need is a one- size-fits-all solution or more unfunded federal mandates passed on to our states. the need to be treated as partners, not underlings. we want to work to implement good public policy. as we told congressional leaders, reducing the deficit by shifting costs to the state is not indicative of the good partnership. whether it is deficit reduction or other pressing national issues, we feel the two principles will guide these relationships with the federal government and the state. the principles are the flexibility and the partnershi
." and he goes on to discuss it in various views. and he says, lastly, "it would fafacilitate and foster the painful practice of practices which has shown itself only be in states where a majority, a practice subversive of all the order and principles of regular government, a practice which leads more directly to public convulsions and the ruin of popular governments than any other which has yet been displayed among us." and he also made point that you would end up with equitable sacrifices to the general wheel or general good. so as we turn to our conversations in our respective caucuses and to the dialogue here on the floor of the senate, i ask my colleagues to search your hearts about our responsibility to the citizens of the united states of america to address the big issues facing america, which means that we don't paralyze this body in secret. if you have points to make then do them, as was done during periods of great debates on the floor of the senate, make them on the floor of the senate, engage in that debate. and when no more is to be said, when all hundred senators say, we ha
, the dynamics of a region as they are today. lastly, i think this is an opportunity for this committee to finally do the work it should have done for years. when you read the report, and you realize we have never done an authorization, we have never looked at how foreign aid is spent, never done a top to bottom review. i know it's something that people like you look at as something that is healthy, and can be done in partnership. i know there was some mention of cost. and i was really disappointed with the arb when the first thing that came out of the mouths of two people that i respect was money, money, money. the fact is the this committee would have no idea whether the appropriate amount of money is being spend, or if that could have prevented what happened in benghazi. so i look at this as a tremendous opportunity, and i want to close, again, by thanking you for your service, for your friendship, for your transparency, and i certainly look forward to your testimony. i know it will be presented in a way that will be constructive and helpful to us in the future, thank you. >> thank y
of the region as they really are today. and then lastly, i think this is an opportunity this committee to finally do the work that it should have been doing for years. when you read the arb report and you realize we have never done an authorization of the state department in the six years that i've been here, we've never looked how foreign aid has been spent. we have never done a top to bottom review, i know it is something people like you who come to this position look at something that is healthy and can be done in partnership. i know there was some mention of costs and, i was really disappointed with the arb when the first thing that came out of the mouths of two people that i respect was money, money, money. the fact is this committee would have no idea whether the appropriate amount of money is being spent or that could have prevented what happened in benghazi because we've never done an authorization. so i look at this as a tremendous opportunity. i want to close again by thanking you for your service, thanking you for your friendship, thanking you for your transparency, and i ce
that will prevent identity theft and end the hiring of future unauthorized workers and lastly, we establish an improved process for admitting future workers to serve our nation's work force needs while simultaneously protecting all workers. other bipartisan groups and senators have stood in the same spot before, trumpeting similar proposals, but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act, but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much father, we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. we recognize that in order to pass bipartisan legislation, none of us can get everything we want. that's why our frame work says
to senator menendez talking about the motivation for the legislation. [video clip]>> lastly, as someone who is an advocate of making sure that our economy is strong as a result of immigration reform, and also that we preserve a core value of family unification. how do we do that in a way that is smart and promotes illegal immigration as opposed to having families divided for so long and then pressures on to make choices on becoming reunified. i believe we can take care of all of those issues. host: is that a good reason to push legislation forward? guest: i like that better than the political reason. some have cited we need immigration reform because republicans have not won elections but i do not think we should set our public policy on immigration on challenges we might have elect orally. the -- electoraly. we should set our agenda on what is the most fair way to deal with the challenges, as currently the system is broken. it is not working for anybody. it is not working in the urban immunities, and certainly not in the counties that i represent in eastern indiana. we need to keep clear g
facility that was my program last summer we signed in, and lastly the violence in the video games. i don't allow "call of duty" in my home. we have to talk about all of it as parents, and i think we need to do things in all four of the categories. >> you say talk about it. why didn't you mention it in your address last night? >> you pick what you want to talk about and after we've been through hurricane sandy i thought that should be the focus of what we discussed yesterday as a state, where we've been and where we're headed to get everybody back on track so we're going to have plenty of time to talk about that stuff as we move forward through the legislative year and i'll be a full participant in the conversation but in a half-hour address you pick and choose what you talk about. >> let's talk about hurricane sandy because you really spanked the republicans in congress and said it was disgraceful that they didn't pass the whole relief bill. some republicans said you went a little bit overboard criticizing fellow republicans. was that the right thing to do? >> sandy i
